Katrina’s Heroes Getting Younger

 Katrina  Kaif seems to be struggling with a  mid-career crisis.  While she started  her career  with  Akshay Kumar and  Salman Khan,she  quickly  scaled down  her co-stars’ age with Ranbir Kapoor, Siddharth Malhotra and even Aditya Roy Kapoor.

And  now it seems she is  slipping down to another generation. In a proposed film for Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment Katrina  will be seen with  Ishaan  Khattar and  Siddhanth  Chaturvedi. Both these actors  are her  junior by  at  least  ten years.

Ishaan  who made his  debut with Majid Majidi’s  Beyond The Clouds in 2017 is Katrina’s contemporary  Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother. Siddhanth Kapoor made his debut this year  as  the  rapper in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy.

So unless she’s playing an older woman Katrina  would have  to  work hard to look compatible with her juniors.

It isn’t unusual  for established actresses  to work with younger costars.  Mala Sinha and Nanda  costarred  with Sanjay Khan and Shashi  Kapoor, respectively.  Waheeda Rehman  worked with  Rajesh  Khanna and Amitabh  Bachchan, both her  juniors .More recently Kareena Kapoor  co-starred with Imran Khan in two films.

And why not!
